The bookstore Laformadelibro, the Italian-Albanian writer received in Padua on Friday 22 September Anilda Ibrahimi, to present his latest novel "Your name is a promise" Einaudi ed.
A large and attentive audience, made up of Albanians and Italians, listened to the lively exhibition of Anilda, enchanted by her smile and her story-telling art.
Anilda Ibrahimi has the beauty, the strength, the charm of Albanian women, women and strong-willed together. Time, of which women are masters, is the protagonist of his stories. Past, present and future intertwine; pain, patience, hope, life and death: everything belongs to the feminine universe. And Anilda interprets it.
"I tell stories - said Anilda to those who asked her about her narrative - I made my culture by reading the books of the great European authors, which my father gave me to read and whose libraries and libraries were rich. Albania at the time of the dictatorship. We all read a lot then.
But in parallel, I, as a woman, also had to learn female work. And so. while my grandmother, my aunts, taught me to make filo pastry, I listened to their chatter: tales of life, gossip, ancient legends of our country; and inside came the popular culture, the life of our families, of our ancestors ".
All this is back in the books of Ibrahimi today, all this is his life today. She is also Italian, Italian is the language of her daily life, Italians are her children. Anilda is a citizen of the world, we are all migrants, and, to quote his novel, "nomads in the desert of history".
At the end of the evening we reluctantly left the room; two profitable and rich words.

Biography of Anilda Ibrahimi
Born in Valona, an Albanian journalist and writer currently residing in Italy. In 1996 he won the first prize for contemporary Albanian poetry in Lausanne and published the collection of poems "Crystal of sadness".
In 2008 the novel "Rosso come una sposa" was published by Einaudi, written in Italian and focused on the vicissitudes of the women of a family through the social changes of Albanian history, from the archaic world of the early twentieth century to the real socialism of the communist regime of Enver Hoxha, to the post-communist society.
With the novel "Your name is a promise" (Einaudi, 2017) he won the 33 / a edition of the national literary prize for the woman writer "Rapallo Carige".
Two words to explain the difference between the vaccine (which generally requires only one administration or periodic administrations, such as every XNUMX years (as with the hepatitis B vaccine) and the antiviral drug (such as the cocktail for HIV-positive patients, who ingest molecules through daily pills that attack parts of the virus, to directly destroy it). The vaccine consists of the administration of molecules that mimick parts of the virus without being infectious, so that our immune system can develop a memory to recognize those parts (that particular type of antigen) when the virus comes back on the doorstep...this memory in some cases lasts all the life, in other cases (like hepatitis B) a decade or so. Once this immune memory has been developed in our body, the pathogen will have to deal with an extremely powerful arsenal of anti-viral mechanisms (orchestrated by our immune cells) that will kill it in no time (in fact, after we get vaccinated, if we get the flu, we get rid of it without even realizing it...our (memory) immune cells know what to do at that point). Another way to develop this memory is by letting ourselves to be infected — as we've done with lots of infections, with low mortality and low morbidity. The antiviral drug is a molecule that acts against the pathogen too, but it does so on its own — the basic problem of an antiviral is that it doesn't last forever, because everything we eat (the pills) is excreted from our body, in a few hours or few days — but there are also molecules that can float, once you put them into the circle, for quite a few days ...(or techniques that modern pharmacology has been studying for a decade or so, aimed to transform molecules with the objective of extending their permanence in the tissues after being administered, see above: nanotechnology therapy).
